When I want to talk,
I think I will,
If I speak the truth,
Then you will listen.

When I want to shout,
I think I might,
If I shout a message,
Then maybe you won't forget it.

But is it what you wanted?
Is it what you ask of me?
Is it what you conceived for me
At my very birth?

I think you want to know me,
I think you want to love me,
I think it impossible,
A feat too informal for my taste,

But then you draw closer,
Then you let me run,
But then I don't get far,
Then I remember you.

It seems so strange,
Once again I feel so strange,
It is not what you wanted,
But now you are happy,

You said you had a plan,
And amazingly, for once,
It worked. It was not failed.
But what of me?

This is not normal.
This is not ordinary,
I won't accept it,
I'm with your Spirit, but I lack your Whole.

Why is this so?
Why did you draw me so close,
Then withdraw your whole self?
I can't take it for long.

But years I have to wait,
For years you waited for me,
But it seems so perfectly imperfect,
And I feel so left behind.

Is this what you planned?
Is this what God had planned?
Expose yourself, then tell me I must wait.
Oh, how I grow impatient.

But this is what you want,
This is what I will do,
This seems unlike salvation,
Though I know it is,
It seems like a well thought-out reprimand.

Such a sin I commited to deserve it,
Such a deed you did to redeem me,
And thouhg I don’t accept your Spirit,
You have accepted me.
A poem that you must read i suppose, like most, to understand, thats just how it works. It's also about God, so any people who think it might offend them, don't spam or flame me if you read it, that's wholely your decision, not mine. Off the subject, I recently divulged the information to my mom that I am a poet who's mild works are mildly popular, she agrees that i have some sort of talent, so I suppose i will work harder in my poetry and creative drive for my mom. =D it's always nice to do things for your parents who did so much for you. this poem however, has nothing to do with that. Enjoy.

Is this God or a significant someone that's no longer with you?
